About Alexa

A Boston-based freelance writer and self-published author, am a first-year fiction student in the Creative Writing MFA program at the University of Massachusetts Boston; I received my bachelor's degree in communication from the University of Miami in 2017. I've been writing with bylines since 2011, but picked up creative writing when I was ten. 

My work has appeared in New York University's award-winning Washington Square News, my alma mater's award-winning The Miami Hurricane, and online music magazine EUPHORIA.

I  also contributed to Gulfstream Media Group's publications (stories published in Boca Life, The Palm Beacher, Fort Lauderdale Daily, and Jupiter magazines) and The Boca Raton Observer. My first novel, 27 Stories, a work of young adult fiction, was published in April 2018. Currently, I tutor K-12 students and am the student coordinator for community reading series and literary platform Write on the DOT; I am also the Editor-in-Chief for The Watermark, UMass Boston's arts journal.

"In Writing" is my lexicon, in a way: this project is my word on what really matters— creativity, culture, wellness, and social and political issues— as well as short fiction and the occasional poem. You can find posts sorted by category under the "Blog" tab, and follow along on Medium, where I post more often. See my full writing portfolio here and view my résumé here.
